Just Kate Posted August 11, 2012 Share Posted August 11, 2012 So far, my little family has kept birthday parties fairly small. Most of the parties have been family or family friends. My kids have enjoyed their parties, but they just haven't been huge like some families we know. Fast forward to this year, my dd is turning five. She goes to a preschool that also is a daycare, so she has continued to attend all summer. Since all of the kids are "graduating" and moving onto Kindergarten, she begged to have a party and invite all of her preschool friends. I don't know many of the parents well, so I knew we would have to have the party away from our home (I thought kids would be more likely to come). We reserved the brand-new local spray ground for 7:15 this evening. Yes, it is late, but some other kids in her class have also had late parties that have been well-attended. It is birthday party day and I have heard from exactly TWO of the kids in her class. They are coming. My 12 year old niece is also coming. That is all. We also invited a few church families and none of them can attend. At least they RSVP'd. (That's a whole other rant...does no one know how to RSVP anymore???) I am disappointed that dd is going to be disappointed. I am furious with myself for spending this kind of money on a party and no one is coming. THIS is why I don't do big parties. And mark my words...I will not make this mistake again. :glare: (Thanks for reading my vent). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
